Activity in the Irish investment market in the year-to-date has been very strong, buoyed by a number of large transactions. To date, the Brexit referendum result has had no discernible impact on the appetite for Irish commercial property investments. If anything, it has boosted the volume of enquiries for prime real estate with several Euro-denominated funds having increased their capital allocations of late.
